, continue to help us on the exam process for the rest of the positions that we are trying to hire which are some it positions and some senior electrical inspecters and our permit technicians. as we expected the non-personal services are under non-expending because we get a lot of the bills at the end of the year. and then, in terms of the other expenditures, you know we continue with our services of other department and we have gotten the billings for the larger work orders so this is the... the city attorney services have come in less than i expected so i am going to discuss with them on this because we have referred many cases to them and i am not sure whether those are being picked up. and then, our program expenses, you know, are so small that it would not make any sense to spend a lot of time on those. >> the other thing that i would like to mention is that we are heading into the budget process and it is being submitted on friday and as i mentioned last time, it is kind of at that point there is a lot of discussions between, within the mayor's office and the controllers office and

to really clearly communicate and have them hopefully clearly understand what is necessary for us to do business. we are looking in as was suggested on to having find some extra or actually in terms of our replacements of cars, include, some of the electric cars but there real big impediment right now is the charging stations. so we continue to take the recommendations of the commission and commissioner melgar to try to get more to the clean air passed the high roads and passed the cngs but i think that the departments are having those kinds of problems of getting the charging stations up. it would be nice if we could buy a parking lot that we could put a bunch of charging stations and we kind of joked around with that with the controllers office, yng that is going to happen. but absent that we are trying to work on what could be done. the other thing is i have told you the controller's office is working with us in coming up with some recommendations for reserved policies and areas that we may want to look at using some of our fund balance. and it would be great if there was some
